Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Hi guys,
I'm new to the forum.
I would like to add some yoyo stoppers to my Prism E2 and I'm unsure of how far down to put them.
Has anyone experimented with stoppers on their E2? If so what measurment worked for them?
If anyone owns an E3 could you please measure where your stoppers are placed and let me know? As I imagine this would be about right for the E2 also, having the same frame and all.
 
Thanks guys. I would appreciate any input or Ideas.

Peace,
Petey.

Welcome to the Forum Pete. If you lay the kite on its belly with the lines coming out from the nose (parallel of course), just outside where they cross the leading edge would seem a good place.

Thanks for the response Kitelover  Smiley
This was my initial thought but I wanted to make sure.
I've since been directed to some old posts on the Prism forum of some guys who did some testing with different positions and found it to be a little lower than this.
About 6.5 to 7.5 inches below the upper spreader fitting. The pigtails crossed the leading edge at about 6" down from the US fitting.

Thanks again Smiley

Peace,
Petey.
